Jal Shakti Abhiyan – Har Ghar Jal Scheme (National Water Conservation Scheme 2019-20)
Scarcity of water was not a new issue in the urban areas. But the problem is no longer confined to the cities. It has reached the rural areas as well. The environmentalists had raised their concern about this in the past as well. But the government was unable to take any concrete measures to curb the issue. Millions of people in India are suffering from low water supply. They have to depend on the water tankers, which are commissioned by the state governments, to distribute water in the badly hit areas. As the similar situation has been reported in multiple states, the central government has finally realized the gravity of the matter, and has come up with a project that may offer a way out. The name of this scheme is Jal Shakti Abhiyan, and the authority wants the participation of people, from all walks of the society. In this article, you will get detailed information about the features of this scheme.
